Report: Carmelo Anthony To Nets Nearly Certain

The New York Post is reporting that the New Jersey Nets are almost certain they will be able to complete a three-team trade and have Carmelo Anthony in uniform by next Friday.

If completed, Anthony is expected to meet with Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov on Tuesday or Wednesday. The billionaire is scheduled to attend the Nets’ Wednesday home game against the Jazz, which is Russian Culture Night at Prudential Center.

One person directly involved in the trade scenario suggested that if all goes as planned and the deal is finalized, Anthony could play his first game for the Nets next Friday against the Pistons.

Supporting the idea that the Nets are the only major player in the Melo-Drama right now is are reports that Denver is not interested in a three-team proposal by the New York Knicks that would have the Memphis Grizzlies shipping O.J. Mayo to Denver and having Anthony wind up with the Knicks.
